I follow the grep mailing list and egrep is deprecated in favor of grep 
-E.  Same for fgrep and grep -F.

See the grep man page:

In  addition, the variant programs egrep and fgrep are the same as grep 
-E and grep -F,  respectively. These  variants  are  deprecated,  but 
are provided for backward compatibility.
